KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a competent one-volume substitute for the standard Calahan volumes on sailing and racing (Macmillan). Essentials of seamanship, based on actual yacht club lessons. The text starts with the selection of the boat, basic structure and parts, and ends with yachting etiquette and emergencies. There is grounding on fundamental information, instruction in handling of a boat, nautical terminology, do's and don't's, and an overall background for the three stages of sailing.
